I updated firware for DSD support. DSD mode started ok with my DAC on ak4490. But I can not find what pin can be used for DSD ON.

I was one of the first to buy one of these. Served me well...but looks like something broke. Light comes on, get sync on my DAC, but USB doesn't detect anymore

Any ideas what I can possibly check?

@ yammy1688: you can blame the USB multiplexer chip as it's not the first time when I'm replacing those parts due to poor ESD protection nature.
BTW, what errors do you get from your PC/MAC/etc? Does your 'host' see the WaveIO in any way or it doesn't react at all when you're plugging in your board?

Hello Lorien! Nothing comes up as far as I can tell. Any chance you could point me in the direction for a replacement part? Is it just a matter of de-soldering?

@ yammy1688: Most likely so but that damn part is hard to remove not to mention to solder a new one in place. That's because it does have a thermal pad under it which is directly connected to the GND internal layers... so most of the heat from your air gun will spread out to those copper layers through vias. If you'll give to too much temperature then you can risk damaging the new part!
Yeah...

There's a second option to try it out: check an USB adapter like this one which can be hooked to J1 pin header! Then change ONLY the J8 jumper to "EXT" position! This way you'll route the USB data path from local USB connector to remote one connected to J1. If that USB multiplexer chip is not 100% dead then you may continue using your WaveIO though that external adapter!
The other choice would be to send back your card here for repairs! I would not suggest to try it there unless you really know what you're doing! I've spent a lot of time and burned a lot of those parts until I found the proper heat temp to replace them safely! Obviously, what I'm saying are only suggestions but you can proceed whatever you'll fit best for your needs!

Back to the WaveIO, to all interested, yesterday I got a fresh driver version from Thesycon: v4.14. It's not even listed on their site at this moment but I guess working hard and avoid stealing pays off!
I'm stil having to customize it and build up the archive but if there's anyone interested to have a copy just let me know!

Ah, and for those really interested in having it, you do need to be one of my customer or have one of my boards to get it!
EDIT: at least, this is what I'm asking against my free driver updating service!

Kind regards,
Lucian
Good afternoon.
I have been a user of the WaveIO board for several years. Periodically looked into this thread and updated the driver. And as you can see from the above, the author was very proud of his free support (driver update). But today I got an answer from him where he is asking for 10 euros for the prediction of a new driver for Vawei. Well ... the cases are different. I can only wish Lorien success and will use the old drivers.

@ Surgut2006: the long story short is that things are different now! Starting with this year, some license deals and 'business opportunities' have severely changed in our disadvantage.
You all know that for a period of seven years (2017 included - because I sourced free driver support in this year too!) I offered free driver updates to anyone wishing to have a copy without getting nothing in return. On my side, those drivers were not get for free. Until 2016 things were still... easier for me while the charges for having updated drivers were somehow... bearable, starting from 2016, when Thesycon, basically, saw with their own eyes how their native/ not customized driver pack was hacked by the chinese copycats, and here I'm clearly speaking about diyinhk guy - from whom all this thing have started -, they severely changed both the driver itself and license deals to get it.

As for me, sells are not as it used to be to afford spending the amount of money Thesycon want for each new driver release so I had to choose between leaving all aside and do anything else than electronics... and here I'm sure there are plenty who barely wait for this to happen OR charge a fee for access to the new driver release just to cover some of my expenses to get them.
Obviously I chose the second path!

This is not a post motivating myself why I'm doing this! I thought about it for a long time and I'm sure is the right decision. Instead this is something I wrote for anyone who's reading it to understand that things have severely changed, things that are far beyond my control.... and I can only be agree with or do anything else than electronics.
I'm sorry for all this trouble but we all shall thank to the copycats around the world who are stealing from others doing irreversible damage along the way.

Kind regards,
L
